My IB background story and anxieties for finals
November 1st, 2016
If you didn't know, in Indonesian, the H is "hari yang ditentukan", or the due date. Which means, H-1 is basically like saying "one day until the due date". The due date, of course, being the start of my IB exams. I thought it would be interesting to document what I can during this flurry that is otherwise known as the month which will determine the rest of my educational career. Maybe this will help any of you who are/will/have gone through the IB DP or just high school curriculum, really. Maybe this will only be functional for me, as something I can look back at once I'm much older and hopefully more prepared to face daunting things such as final exams. I better be. Seriously, Future Sel, I expect a lot more from you.
But back to Present Sel, I'm currently in a state of frenzy, trying to retain as much economical information as I can before my exams. I have economics and english literature first, two days in a row. Both High Level subjects = 5 papers in two days. I would definitely consider economics and english literature as the hardest subjects that I take, apart from math and physics (which I've sort of given up on. I'll settle for a pass. Okay, maybe a 5 for math and a pass for physics).
There is so much going through my mind right now and so far, I've managed to fight away anxiety until before bed. Which probably explains the amount of creepy nightmarish dreams I've been getting. Although, good news, they've been slowly fading away and I can now say I have normal anxiety dreams (yes, this is good news for me).
A lil background on my IB career as context for the rest of the #IBDiaries:
Wish me luck.
I feel like I'm about to throw up, scream, sleep, and over-eat all at once.
I seriously hope uni will be better.
Alright, bye now. I have to go and force macroeconomic facts in to my brain for tomorrow.
